With Google leading the way in search it stands to reason that YouTube would follow suit and it has on a grand scale with four billion videos being streamed every day and of course there are video uploads, this is what YouTube was built on! With one hour of video being uploaded every single second and that is a lot of video.
According to YouTube in a blog posting they said regarding this milestone event;
Since the dawn of YouTube, we’ve been sharing the hours of video you upload every minute. In 2007 we started at six hours, then in 2010 we were at 24 hours, then 35, then 48, and now…60 hours of video every minute, an increase of more than 30 percent in the last eight months. In other words, you’re uploading one hour of video to YouTube every second. Tick, tock, tick, tock — that’s 4 hours right there!
